READ McMATH'S STORYROOT BLOG
McMath's interactive educational programs, lecture series, and living history productions have been commissioned by schools, libraries, and museums such as the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History, the National Trust's Oatlands Plantation, The Newseum and The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.
McMath is an award-winning historian, published author, prize-winning playwright, and the Managing Director of RUN RABBIT RUN THEATRE COMPANY. She currently serves on the Board of Very Special Arts of Loudoun, Virginia. She holds a BA in History from The College of William and Mary and an MS in Arts Management from Shenandoah University with a concentration in Arts Marketing.
That unique background in history, education and theatre arts enables McMath to create compelling works with a particular focus: bringing unknown and unsung history to life. For example, her play All for the Union in Confederate Virginia, weaves together true stories of the Quaker women who ran an Underground Railroad, the lives of Virginia slaves, and the history of the only Union troop to form within Confederate Loudoun County, VA.
Other works include articles, columns, contemporary plays, books for musicals, and librettos operas. McMath has been honored in the 2010 “Women with Vision” exhibit at Franklin Park Performing Arts Center, and is a recipient of The Thomas Balch Library Loudoun History Award and a League of Women Voters' award for "Advancing the awareness of Women's history."
